Kathmandu, April 26

Malaysian climber Wui Kin Chin (49) has been successfully brought down to Annapurna Base Camp and now has been airlifted to Kathmandu.

Chin went missing on the mountain on Tuesday after making it to the peak. However, Chin was spotted by rescuers near Camp IV of Mount Annapurna on Thursday, after which a rescue operation was initiated by his expedition organisers Seven Summit Treks Pvt. Ltd.

Experienced mountaineer Dawa Sherpa coordinated the rescue team which had three experience Sherpas and was led by-British Gurka Nirmal Purja Magar.

The Malaysian climber was stranded in the open for two nights on one of the world’s most treacherous mountains.

Climbing experts say it is a ‘miracle’ that Chin survived the freezing conditions on Mount Annapurna for so long.

He’s being airlifted to Mediciti Hospital.
